Enjoyable stay for 2 nights for City2Surf week-end. Perhaps a discount should apply to people who return and stay at the Grace year after year!!

Great location, friendly staff,

Friendly and accommodating staff Comfortable rooms (great mattresses! We all slept so well) Good location Great buffet breakfast The only constructive feedback is that the doors between the pool and terrace were left open - which was too cold at 7am on a winter's morning. We closed them but the pool room was pretty chilly. The sauna and steam room also weren't yet hot, despite the pool being open for an hour.

Fire alarm experience - hotel staff oblivious to the situation

Location, cleanliness n comfort of room were good. As reviewed by other guests, wifi charges were exorbitant and no free wifi in the lobby brings down the value. I had an alarming experience on the last day if my stay, Was awakened by the fire alarm and throughout the whole ordeal, no hotel staff was on standby to direct the guests or answer any queries to the alarm. No PA message to inform what's happening. When I ran down the stairs to the lobby the hotel staff seemed oblivious to the situation and performing their individual duties. Guests were left alone trying to figure out what happened. Only upon seeing the firemen and overhearing their conversation with a guest then we knew it was safe to go back to our rooms. Again no staff at the lobby came to inform us. No PA message to update. If it had been a real fire alarm, I cannot imagine how the guests would coped. Throughout the fire alarm ringing, I did not receive any assistance from the hotel. In this safety aspect, I am truly disappointed.

Centrally located, clean, excellent staff

Love the Grace Hotel in Sydney. We have stayed in at least 7 different hotels in Sydney and the Grace Hotel is the best. Rooms are designed to perfection and standard of cleanliness is very high. Staff are excellent - always pleasant, courteous and just wonderful. I'll always stay here if I'm in the city. I only suggested that they have more power points in the wall for our laptops, chargers etc.

nice time had

we enjoyed our time here. free internet would of been a plus, even in the lobby area so didnt bother. my only gripe was my wife had travelled 9 hours in a plane to be told at 9pm we couldnt cheki in until 3pm. Hotels at all levels expect trans continent pax to walk around cities for hours like a zombie. Otherwise room, bed and bathroom were all nice.
